Default Re: HD Driver 12.8.4 not working correctly on my Mac HDX rig

Additionally, if I launch the avidaudioserver app and then close it on 12.8.4's hd driver, it will not let me open it again unless I restart the Mac. I even upgraded my OS from 10.11 to 10.12 last night and uninstalled/reinstalled 12.8.4 hd drivers with the same result. Ditching 12.8.4 drivers and rolling back to 12.8.3 gets it working again :-/ Using 12.8.3's driver allows me to close and reopen the audioserver app as well. Avid tech support told me this was a known bug. I am hoping it gets fixed in 12.8.5. Is anyone else having this issue? Thanks!
Since you list 10.11 and 10.12 with no further (.) number ,,,,, I have no clue if this might be the problem but it looks like these are listed compatible OS configurations for (2018.4) --------- macOS High Sierra (10.13.3), macOS Sierra (10.12.6), and Mac OS 10.11.6 (El Capitan)
System :
Avid HD Omni I/O Interface ...Mid 2010 Mac Pro/ processor- 3.33 6-core Intel Xeon "Westmere" w/ Memory- 24 GB........PTHDN 2018.12 on OS 10.13.6 High Sierra on primary boot drive (SSD PCIe 512 GB Samsung SM951) FCPX files storage on Apple 1TB HDD and PT sessions storage on Apple 2TB HDD--
